I have some clay I saved from college 15 years ago that has completely dried out. I have soaked a batch in a 5 gallon bucket of water and have it softened up. Too wet actually, so I have it drying out and will knead it as needed to get it where I want. I don't have a pug or anything, just me and the clay. Back then I added a bunch of extra grog as I'm going to try a pit fire soon. Am I on the right track doing this?
Also going to try to make my own bisque out of a 55 gal barrel and a propane weed torch.
Any thoughts, suggestions and experience? The journey is half the fun!
